May 14, 1943 







Copyright 1943 
By The Honorable Curtis Bok 



Madam President, Mr. Director, members of the 
Graduating Class, and Guests: 

I cannot imagine why directors of otherwise well run educational 
institutions find it necessary to reach out into a chaotic world 
for a distracted business or professional man to give words of 
cheer and wisdom at Commencement. Standing before you at 
this moment, clad in rather odd clothes, is such a person — 
middle aged, a little breathless, and prominent among ward- 
leaders and pickpockets. He holds no degree, thanks to the last 
World War, and has had no Commencement address aimed at 
him since prep school, when someone whom he has successfully 
forgotten did what I am doing now in a snappy hour and forty- 
five minutes. 

I have forgotten about that too, fortunately for you, but I do 
have the impression of having been a little breathless ever since, 
as though I had been running all these years in search of some- 
thing in a world that itself was running too. I am afraid I can 
tell you only about running, and confusion, and search, without 
much fireside wisdom and without much knowledge of your 
specialty. I know that my ears were opened to music by the 
same person who has opened the door to your career: my mother 
played upon the piano for me when I was six, the first sound 
which I can consciously remember — a piece so beautiful that I 
felt she could share it only with the other angels, and it has left 
with me a scent, not so much of itself as of the Divine Dark from 
whence it came. That may be all you and I have in common, for 
I took a different path from yours, and remained a listener. My 
world is different from the one you have chosen: it is uncouth 
and impersonal, while yours is almost too refined and personal, 



and I can turn to your world in a way you cannot turn to mine, 
or even to your own — for peace and for the nostalgia of the old 
scent. 

Maybe it is for this very difference that your Director asked me 
to talk to you, so that we might stand together for a minute on 
neutral ground and appraise each other, with me doing the talk- 
ing for us both. Let me look at you first. It has always seemed to 
me that the music world, more than any other I know, is given 
to jealousy and intrigue and backbiting, on the one hand; and 
to an almost neurotic hero-worship, on the other, with very 
little middle ground. Comments on Franck's D Minor show the 
range I mean. Gounod said when he first heard it that it was 
"the affirmation of incompetence pushed to dogmatic lengths." 
When we open a program now, the first words we see about 
Franck and his symphony are these: "Blessed are the pure in 
heart, for they shall see God." If men in the street expressed 
themselves about each other as I have heard musicians express 
themselves about each other, they would be put in jail for crimi- 
nal libel, or committed. I have seen them grunt and roar, and 
fling their arms about, and do strange things with their head 
and neck; or else shake weakly all over, and cast their eyes up 
to heaven, and weep. It is interesting to account for this exces- 
sive emotion at both ends of the scale. Let me try. 

Music depends mostly on hearing, of all our senses the most 
fragile. Taste and smell are irrelevant to any art. Touch has only 
a mechanical importance, for its main function in life has to do 
with love and hate. Sight and hearing are the artistic senses, and 
sight commands all the arts but music. Even in music you can 
do without your ears more easily than without your eyes: the 
best noises are in your head anyway, and I venture to say there 
are more deaf musicians than blind ones. Painters, writers, sculp- 
tors and architects can see their art before their eyes when they've 
finished. To a degree this is true of composers, but a score can be 



enjoyed only by a few and has to be brought to life for everybody 
else. The interpreter is alone when he's finished work: his product 
is out of sight and down the wind, and there's only an impression 
left to talk about. There he stands, exalted and nervous, with 
nothing to show but a recollection. No wonder he's sometimes 
irritable and envious and rude. We mortals are most afraid of 
what we can't see. 

Somehow composers, Gounod to the contrary notwithstanding, 
seem freer of emotional extremes than interpreters. At least they 
burn with their own fire: the interpreter burns with another's 
fire imposed upon his own, and has nothing to show for it when 
it's over — except, possibly, press clippings, which is something. 
And the composer can write as he pleases: a few poor pieces won't 
spoil his reputation or prevent him from acquiring one. The inter- 
preter faces an impossibly high and unrelenting standard: he must 
be always at concert pitch, and if he isn't, the critics throw him 
to the dogs of public indifference. Aside from my profound con- 
viction that all critics should be shot, I am prepared to defend the 
position that there is no such thing as mediocrity in musical in- 
terpretation — granted a competence to play the notes. There is no 
absolute standard in this world save one, and that, if you happen 
to believe in it, is Divinity. Short of that, it is my belief that 
everything is relative. You cannot even measure an inch with ab- 
solute precision. By the same token music is not an exact science: 
I venture to suggest that you cannot tell me how loud is forte, 
how long is a fermata, or how high is a crescendo, without using 
relative terms. No piece can be played precisely the same way 
twice: however it is played, it is only an approximation to a 
certain level of taste. If you will admit that, you must then agree 
that when you judge musical interpretation as being bad or me- 
diocre or excellent, you are simply being a snob. The interpreter 
may be a poor or indifferent or fine artist, and that's a different 
matter, for the approach is different: it has to do with what he 
can make the music say. 



When we listen to music I think we should listen as much to the 
person who plays it as to what and how he plays, for music is 
nothing unless it is a vista to the soul and spirit of a person. I 
find it harder to listen rewardingly to the great masters, whose 
very adroitness in performance tends to make them inscrutable 
as human beings. At times they even hide their souls behind 
their success. Don't weary me by saying that if the personal 
element drops out you get pure Bach or Brahms or Beethoven. 
I simply don't believe it, for I've never yet heard a master, even 
the greatest who didn't add something of his own. What is a 
sheet of music if its little lines and dots are not a blueprint by 
which you build a structure of your own, in your own color 
and by the light of your own integrity? Speaking as an average 
listener, I shall, listen to your music if you can make it speak to 
me. If you can't, I shall try not to judge you or your performance. 
I shall simply let you alone until you have grown up. I don't 
agree with those who say that no matter what happens you can't 
kill Beethoven. I'm not interested in killing Beethoven: I am 
interested in seeing what kind of structure you build with his 
blueprints and hence what sort of person you are. 

Music, after all, is only a word, like tolerance or truth or justice, 
and words mean nothing by themselves if they are not vital 
working parts in the life of every man. To me tolerance is the 
effort to make decency prevail; truth is what I can't help think- 
ing; justice is what the litigants take home with them from 
Court. And music is an old scent. None of these phrases is a 
definition. Each one is simply an arrow on a trail, pointing the 
way a man must take and make his own. I commend it to you. 
You are musicians and of course you must watch the technique 
of your art as a craftsman must watch the tools of his trade. 
And you must unceasingly judge the quality of your own per- 
formance. Art is a way of life and a way of life is made up of 
experience. See to your own. You cannot have another's experi- 
ence nor he yours. You are both safe in your own privacy and 



neither of you can trespass or even share very much. Only in 
what comes out of you both can there be something that looks 
like common ground. It is common ground and every man has a 
right of access to it. I suggest that you do not judge those others. 
It is necessary to take note, but it is better to join them than to 
judge them, and to keep your counsel. Many of your fellow- 
artists will fail and it will be sad enough to see them do it. The 
one place where a man needs no help is in failing: it is easy to 
manage alone. If you can listen to a brother artist without for- 
getting your own struggles, you will know that the Hound of 
Heaven is on his trail as well as on yours. 

All this is pretty solemn. I only want to prove to you if I can 
that the public will listen to you even more than to your music. 
That's just the way things are. If they were otherwise, we'd put 
screens around you, have you all paid a living by the State, and 
listen undistractedly to your music. 

And now for my world. There's not much about it to recommend 
to you. I wish I could tell you that it hungers for your music. 
It doesn't. Let's be honest about that. There is a small section 
that's interested, but the supply of musicians is greater than the 
demand. It is not easy to get a start and hold it. I regret to say 
that it seems easier for those with personality than for those 
with character. Personality is the point of emphasis, at any rate, 
if the pictures of musicians are any criterion. In so many of these 
the artist appears with his hair in seven directions and his half- 
closed eyes staring with morose ferocity into the outer reaches 
of space. This is Music with a capital Moo. I suspect there is 
also a good deal of nonsense in the passion for modern music. 
Now and then there comes a lonely soul with something really 
new to say, but beware the empty vessel that hides its nakedness 
with strange sounds. This is Music with the accent on the second 
syllable, and the public has never yet failed to catch up with 
a faker. 



What I have just said does not apply to the first rank artists, 
although I might remind you of what an old Quaker is supposed 
to have said to his wife: "all the world is queer but thee and 
me, Martha, and sometimes even thee is a little queer." But 
there are only a few great ones, and honesty compels me to say 
that you will not all be great: probably most of you will not be. 
Talent and success do not necessarily run together. There must 
also be a ruthlessness, which is dangerous to the one thing that 
in the end will determine your success, and that is your character. 
If you have a tough or gentle soul, or no particular soul at all, 
neither your technique nor your memory will matter. What you 
are will show itself and the public will respond to that more 
surely than merely to what you can do. Remember that people 
still went to hear Paderewski at eighty, when he couldn't play 
any better than I can. That is why I defend what is called the 
mediocre performer — the person, I mean, as against the talent, 
which doesn't add up to very much unless it is the servant of 
the whole man. You won't succeed by your talent, but by 
yourselves. 

Most of the public is interested in jazz, and it is formidable com- 
petition, for it comes from sources that are close to the earth. 
It is instinctual, and the public trusts instinct and mistrusts 
intelligence: very properly, since intelligence is the means by 
which most people get ahead, usually at other people's expense. 
It is my opinion that when plain people show an interest in 
what they call classical music, outside of a few old hymns and 
a small group of simple and sentimental melodies, it is mainly 
out of curiosity that human hands or vocal cords can be made to 
do such things. And it remains nothing but curiosity for a long 
time. There is only one thing that will ease them over their 
suspicion of your talent and bring them to a wide love of music 
for itself. That again is your own character. Until you can con- 
vince them that you are honest they will regard your art as 
black magic, for not knowing music, they can't tell whether 



you are giving them real stuff or baloney. If they know you're 
honest you can teach them. 

I'm not giving you a Bible talk on character. I assume you have 
it. I merely make the suggestion that when you graduate from 
here you graduate to an extent from the music world as well. 
It can be a tight little world walled up in a box, and if you stay 
in it you can become just as precious in your attitude towards 
life as the great public can remain suspicious of you. And you 
are the folks with something to sell. 

We need your product badly. It has much to do with what is 
beautiful in life and with the inner meditations of man's spirit. 
But not everything. I hope you are humble enough to know that 
music doesn't have all the answers to all the problems. It helps, 
but it is only part of a very great whole. You are servants of life 
more than you are servants of music, and life has need of you 
just now. I doubt if this war will be over and a peace worked 
out for many years to come. By that time enormous numbers of 
people and vast amounts of material will have been blown to 
bits. The world will have spent half a trillion to a trillion dollars 
on war — enough to rebuild all the cities of the earth and stabilize 
all its economic systems in terms of freedom from want and fear. 
We willingly spend all of that on war but not on peace. It will 
be an exhausted, sullen and vengeful world when this is over. 
And it may not be the last war. Probably not. When all allow- 
ances have been made for the stated ideals inherent in the present 
conflict, we know that what men are really fighting for is the 
right to fight again. We have never really tried peace, for we 
have not yet learned to be sure that we actually want it, all the 
way. There cannot be an end to war while man is at war within 
himself: there cannot be peace until he is at peace within him- 
self. Each man. Each single man. 

You come to this kind of world with an art that is supposed to 
convey beauty and the kind of peace which is necessary in order 



to enjoy it. Your music will do little good unless you can make 
it speak with a peace and common honesty of your own. 

I wish I could tell you how to achieve these things. I 
only know there is but one agent that can do it. That is 
the world itself — the world of steel and flowers and wind and 
unaccountable people, living and dead. The world can be relied 
on to grind us into some final shape before we die, and we have 
a certain amount of choice in the sides of us that we turn to the 
grinding surface. We make that choice by whatever inner light 
we have. I prefer leaving absolutes aside and not thinking in 
terms of right and wrong: there is only the distance one can see 
by his own light, and provided he looks his hardest and is not 
careless, that light will serve him. So it is a good world, if for 
no other reason than because it is the only one we have. After 
all, it has given us music as well as steel, and a strange, un- 
conquerable hope. 

I have finished and I wish you well.
